A bit about Guy Fawkes ...

Guy Fawkes (April 13, 1570 January 31, 1606), was a member of the group of Roman Catholic conspirators who attempted to carry out the Gunpowder Plot. The conspirators had planned to assassinate King James I of England and VI of Scotland and all the members of both branches of the Parliament of England. To do this, the House of Lords was to be blown up during the formal opening of the 1605 session of Parliament. Guy Fawkes was primarily responsible for the latter stages of the plan's execution. He was discovered before its completion, however. Following an interrogation, Fawkes and his co-conspirators were executed for treason. His capture is commemorated in Britain with Guy Fawkes Night.
